Linear PCM Audio and Premiere Cs4 Problem

Hi everyone. I thought a few months back I saw a thread on this, but I can't seem to find it.

Here is my problem... When I shoot my footage (no matter what hd format) and use the Linear PCM audio setting on the NX5u, Premiere can not interpret it I guess. The video plays back fine but the audio is just a VERY loud static sound. When the normal Audio setting is checked I have no problems what so ever. Is this a Camera problem, a Premiere cs4 setting problem, or is it just an incompatibility issue?

Thanks -Nick

I had the same problem with my NX5 and Premiere Pro CS4. CS4 just doesn't support LPCM audio (CS5 does however). The only solution is to downgrade to Dolby Digital audio or upgrade to CS5.

I'm pretty sure Adobe offers a 30 day trial of their software. Maybe you could try out Premiere CS5 and get your project done in a month?

That's a good suggestion (using a trial cs5) but I will hold off and just forget about this clip audio anyway. It was just messing around with the camera and got something interesting. No big deal at all. I'll save the cs5 trial for when I shoot a wedding and forget to switch the audio to dolby ;-X

trial of CS5

Hi, Nick...

Just a note that the trial of CS5 is severely limited in what it can do with AVCHD files. Adobe has a buried article somewhere on what is turned off for trial users, but trying the trial version on AVCHD files will probably result in a lot of headaches for you. At least that what I've picked up from other users on the Adobe forums.

I have the full version of CS5 and the Production Premium suite and it will recognize PCM audio. Adobe Media Encoder, included therein, can transcode AVCHD to other formats including ProRes...AND PRESERVE THE ORIGINAL CAMERA TIMECODE...which can be a valuable element depending on the project.

Hope this is helpful...John
